I want to write a web based chatting application for specific business domain with Voice and Video streaming. I don't have any idea about voice chatting.

Can you guide me and introduce some useful links.

This is not something you are going to be able to accomplish solely with web technologies. For example, nothing in server-based servlets and JSP will alow you to capture voice on the client.

Solely with the web technologies this might not be possible as firstly the data (voice data) is to be captured and for this it would need native OS support.And as HTTP is a request response based protocol , I do not think that you can use this for transfering the data captured as for a voice communication.There should be a two way channel working symultaneously for a successful voice connunication.

Mayby you should start with taking a look at the capabilities of WebSphere Application Server v6.1 since that also has a SIP container.
I agree. Here's the link:
